4.5 / 5.074 ReviewsVery handy to useIn the past I used whatever was handy to float my hydrometer in. A friend of mine suggested that I try one of these test jars. I'm very glad that I followed his suggestion, as taking readings are now very easy. The test jar comes apart, which makes it easy to clean and store. I would recommend this item!June 27, 2017Purchased
1 year agogood productA very simple yet important piece of equipment for monitoring the fermentation progress of your brews.April 3, 2014Its ok now, but the old one leakedThe test jar works but sometimes it leaks. I tried to be gentle, but the leaking got worse over time, and after a year I discarded it away and got a different one. That one has been ok for now.March 28, 2014Nice tube.This is a very nice test tube for the price. Despite other reviews, I have not personally had any problems with the tube leaking, and never had to alter the tube with anything to keep it from leaking. It is nice that the tube is plastic, which you dont have to worry about it breaking if accidentally dropped. It is also plenty tall to take accurate readings despite other reviews as well. Really great piece of equipment to have in the brewing tool box and comes with a reasonable price.March 11, 2014Holds the specialized HydrometersThe high end hydrometer with the thermometer is taller than the one I got with my kit and this jar accommadates the extra height._x000D_February 15, 2014TallIts good for the specialty hydrometers that are taller than the standard one that comes with the brewing kits. It's kind of cheaply made but it's not often used and it works.January 18, 2014Good pair for hydrometerHaving this test jar has helped our measuring a lot. Rather than hoping we read the hydrometer accurately in the fermenting bucket, we can get an eye-level view of a sample for testing. If you use a hydrometer, get one of these. We've not experienced any leaking like others have mentioned.December 4, 2013C-It holds my wort for testing and is a good size. And i can read the value through the plastic. But its kind of flimsy, and can leak. For the price it should be better,October 27, 2013Could be betterWell, it isn't that expensive, but it would be nice if 1) it had a wider or heavier base (so it didn't tip over so easily) and 2) was a bit more narrow (looks like you could almost get two hydrometers in there). Never the less, it is useful.October 20, 2013Hydrometer samplingI fill it with my wine thief and take hydrometer readings. Then I drink the sample. Then I rinse it out with soapy water._x000D_No leaks.September 23, 2013
